divide on the issue of gun control. >> reporter: a survey by the public religion research institute, conducted before the newtown shooting, found six in ten catholics support stricter gun control laws, compared to about a third of white evangelical protestants and 42% of white mainline protestants. >> not just about threology but culture and geography. >> reporter: poll found white evangelicals were most likely to own guns. many live in southern and rural areas where guns are a way of life. so, what does the bible say about weapons? >> scripture teaches that christians are not to take weapons and avenge other people however there is an affirmation that government has a divine role to punish evil ers do and so there's ten eggs. >> reporter: with polls showing increased support for gun laws after newtown, could we see a shift among evangelicals? >> may be a tipping point where more folks in those communities realize there are things we can do as a society to tamp down this kind of mass violence that doesn't remember taking away everybody's guns. >> reporter: pastor daniel darling is c
. do i seem like a suicidal schmuck to you? >> you've got from religion to politics. what's next? >> sex. >> is your character -- >> i am me, josh gad, by 32 will be doing porn. >> oh, that's good. >> reporter: but for now gad is sticking with comedy. >> i am really good at impressions. jimmy, you coming home for christmas? you come to dinner? you're breaking my heart, girl. >> president clinton. >> that's right. >> thank goodness we both have amazing metabolisms. >> reporter: there's one last thing i thought i could help gad's tv character with. >> dad! >> reporter: since his father, the president, won't give him a hug -- >> he's never hugged you. >> i know. he's not a big hugger. >> reporter: i thought someone else might. >> you can hug him. he's not creepy, i promise. his arm -- he's a little stiff. dad, it's okay. >> the president loves me. >> our thanks to jenna bush hager and josh gad. >>> another break, and up next for us tonight, it's something a lot of people continue to do, knowing the danger to all, texting while driving. tonight kate snow sets out to find out what hap
-au-prince. later, the third rail of american politics, is not religion and not social security or medicare. so what can bring down a politician faster than you can say flu shot. we'll tell you about it coming up and we begin with the next fiscal cliff and the debt ceiling in a letter to the president yesterday. senate majority lead are harry reid and other top democrats urged the president to take any lawful stps to protect the u.s. from defaulting on its debt and bypassing congress if necessary. is the president ready to invoke the constitution's 14th amendment. it's the big question, nbc news' kristen welker joins me. i understand you have a highlighter in your hand to display the seriousness of what it would mean to invoke the 14th amendment. >> the 14th amendment is very complicated. i want to make sure i'm covering my basis to give everyone a quick explainer of what it is and it goes to the post-civil war era and it is in the expansive rights of the civil war and there is a part of it that deals with the nation's did not and that's where this highlighter comes in. and it states, quote, the val
of religion and the right to bear arms protects it. they are going to win politically if this is not handled differently. >> when you say handled differently -- so yesterday, let me -- didn't mean to talk over you there. let me -- >> no, that's okay. >> yesterday vice president biden almost seemed to acknowledge the -- what arguably is maybe impossible politics now on capitol hill on this issue. of trying to maybe re -- reinstate the assault weapons ban. when he spoke of executive action, was that a mistake by vice president biden? using that phrase? >> well, i dash i don't think it was a mistake. i think clearly there is executive action that can take place to take the mental health issues. we have how many law, hundreds, thousands of laws in place that, quite frankly, aren't being implemented or aren't being enforced. we aren't keeping the records that people are supposed to be -- keeping records on. we need to keep the guns out of people we already know shun have guns in their hands that with mental health issues. so that's something that -- should be there. to ban assault weapons is goin
it's not -- football has nothing to do with it, it's a disgrace. >> let me ask you, in my religion, it's good to suffer some penance in admission of guilt, and then you move on. but when you try to cover something up and you don't confess or accept punishment for it, it stays with you. why doesn't penn state want to get this over with, take their punishment and penalty and get in the huddle and figure out the future? why do they want to go back at this thing when everybody knows they were guilty? >> well, i think penn state probably does want to continue on and get this behind them. and i think it needs to be pointed out this is governor corbett acting independent of penn state. even though he has sat on the board of trustees. listen, chris. i share the skepticism of buzz s bying bissinger about the acts. he has taken a thumping in the polls personally. this litigation might be popular with litigations. one of the reason he's taken such a hurt is people look at him and wonder why as attorney general it took so long for him to move on sandusky. why when he had one credible reporter
in a democracy and say, now we will fix the problems. it does not happen that way. culture, tradition, religion, ethnic clans are all part of that. you work with the system. i talked about alliances. that is what alliances are important. you work with in those systems. to influence change, affect change. there's so many things going on in the world today that are disgusting, despicable, that we hate. sudan is a good example. we have limitations as to what we can do to change that. we should always be about helping change that, people who want to change it. we have limitations. all powers, all individuals have limitations. nations must be wise enough to understand ho. host: chuck hagel. then-senator barack obama and chuck hagel traveling to the middle east. hagel co talks about the limits of power. guest: one of the conditions that president obama and his team said, a lot of demands and expectations around the world. a lot of challenges. america's role is to not challenge the foes, but to be dependable for the allies. i think one of the real challenges is when you think strategically. when you h
of the people? this is a bunch of criminals. those who use a religion in order to kill, collectively, and support to gangsters. every time the army stands hand in hand with the people, they come closer to their demise. however, they began to kill in the front lines, and they used bloodshed, and because the ideology of religious difference is new to us as something strange to us, and therefore, it we have terrorists that describe themselves as jihadists -- al qaeda. they lead terrorist organizations on the ground, and those who are armed on the front line, they move to the back lines in order to use looting and feeding -- feeding -- thieving, those who know nothing but the language of killing and bloodshed. we brothers fight against this. many of them are not serious. they came for sinister ideologies and false ideologies they called a jihad, which is very far from jihad and islam. the people we are facing are those ideologues from al qaeda. we know how they were sponsored three decades ago by the west and the arab the money, and, of course, after the demise of the soviet union, they
your language and your religion, we will do it. but at the same time we're going to insist on our own identity as a mandate people. so you could say that there after the identity grew as a counterpoint to this idea that they should be, civilized highest christians. now, all of these tensions were on display because once the supreme court ruled in their favor, and said they could go home, well, the supreme court also ruled the united states government had no responsibility to pay for their going home so how were they going to get home? well, ma for the longest time people believed that some wealthy abolitionists would pay for this, but, in fact, what happened was the abolitionists with the cooperation of the amistad africans organize a big tour up and down the eastern seaboard in which the amistad africans would go and speak and perform, perform their knowledge of christianity, performed their knowledge of english, performed their civilization. and at the same time, they would insist on singing their native african songs. the african side was always there. and here's the wildest part o
's major religions right now including the evangelical churches to say this is a moral and religious issue, okay. from our worldview, from our standpoint, this is crucial both because we were commanded by god in genesis to till and tend the garden, to care for his creation which when he created he kept telling us, "it is good." okay, it is our responsibility they would say to take care of his creation, and that the kinds of things that we are currently doing to the planet are essentially violating that promise. but moreover, we're also seeing the theme of social justice, that we've been commanded, they would say, to take care of the least of these. the poor, the sick, the powerless both in our own country and around the world. and many churches, in fact, have invested enormous resources, i mean, sending their young people abroad to do great works to try to help people who desperately need that help. their argument would be how can we in good conscience ignore a problem that's just going to push millions of more people around the world into those exact same kinds of circumstances we're tryi

, i think for a lot of people in prison, finding some kind of religion is a way for solace and for community building in the prisons, and so there, you know, there is -- there's sometimes a lot of kind of good community building that comes with that, and that's why the aclu's litigated to protect the religious rights of prisoners, religious access, access to places to worship and things like that because there's actually a lot of good that can come from people finding that kind of community. one more question? >> i heard that aclu, housing people in prison, but what about people who have been through the prison, and, perhaps it's witnessing conduct, and what's, you know, what is the goal? there's conviction to read, and there's the other thing with the charge, and -- >> we do a lot of work on police reform. affiliates, especially, work on excessive use of force cases. they work on racial profiling matters. we run the gamet on police reform. we are sometimes working collaboration with police departments to reform their policies and practices and training, and so we do a lot

the world's great religions have, what according political christians, unacceptable positions or policy of positions, kind of getting to the point where christianity is an easy target. so the christian pastor goes. but when you talk about maybe a jewish rabbi or a muslim imam holding the same positions, now is the intimidation campaign of the left leveled at them? not as of now. christianity seems to be the easy target, but we're going down a slippery slope where any person of faith in a position of authority representing any kind of major faith is going to be subjected to this kind of intimidation and bullying campaign and that's not right. now, this is an extension of the word police. we've been talking about the word police in a lighter context with brent musburger calling katherine webb beautiful and-- >> she's beautiful. >> and it broke loose. in this case, too, you've got the political angle. it is the presidential inauguration, it's different, but we're going down the road where nobody can say anything. and if you go up to the line, it's considered unacceptable and you're out. >>
to bear arms in this country and believe it is as core to them as freedom of speech or freedom of religion. i think the laws that are on the books now would not have kept someone like my father from having a gun. we have real issues on mental health that have to be addressed. we are not seeing money put into programs on the books. but i don't understand why anybody needs an assault weapon in this country. i hope that everybody will come to a table. otherwise people are going to go to their corners and fight not seeing what we need to see get done. >> when you see a movement to restrict gun ownership rights, the inevitable outcome is gun sales, magazine sales, ammo sales guthrough the roof. it is the polar opposite intention of what people on debbie's side. argument want to see. >> we saw this before president obam was elected, when hadt looked like he was going to be elected in 2008 and the time period between the inauguration, you see the big jump in gun sales. there has been some degree of... too much concern on the part of gun owners and people said, the president's going to take away a

. connell: think about this and take as you said take religion out of it for a moment because it brings up kind of the wider discussion of how do we use technology to, you know, make us more efficient or even make us safer. we're having all these discussions in schools about after the shooting in connecticut maybe something like this or more technology would be used. but you can't force people to do it, you're saying. >> let me try and crystallize the argument for you, one school of thought is you need to balance safety with freedom. and then freedom will include privacy. another school of thought is safety and privacy are not equal. privacy is the greater good. privacy is a natural right. i can keep myself safe, but i need the government to stay away from me to keep my privacy. there's no balance between them. it's a bias in favor of privacy. the burden should be on the government to prove why this is necessary, not on the defendant, the student, to prove why this is harmful. dagen: but the momentum is toward greater security. >> yes, the government either based on sound reasoning and log

among christians when it comes to gun control. i mean, a public religion institute survey which of taken before the newtown shooting showed that white evangelical protestants were less likely to favor tighter gun laws than catholics. white mainline protestants are religiously unaffiliated americans. why do you think that is? >> thank you for that question. i mean, i think that's a wonderful question. we should not be surprised that many of our people of faith in this country who are all americans, are very much passionate about the second amendment and gun rights. at the same time, we should not -- we should also not be surprised that there are just as many people of faith if not more who are all in favor of common sense gun laws and promoting a culture of peace and healing in our communities. and i believe that it is our time and our moment to look within ourselves and the principles of our faith to unite our country around a common moral imperative to address the gun violence that is in our country. even to those statistics that you've just lifted up, interestingly enough, the national
, the freedom of religion, the freedom of assembly. the freedom to own guns are messy, very messy things to have in an orderly society and that's why the framers added the bill of rights to the constitution, to say, you know what? because these things are so tantalizing to government, because it makes good sense to he restrict them and to have an orderly society and have limits on what people can say and whether they can own guns, they spell them out, because they knew how tempting it would be to governments later on. >> megyn: saying we're not going to have that here, and pete, yet you see politicians so often, they talk out of both sides of their mouths because they want gun control, they want to crack down on guns, and some say, you know, we need reasonable guns control and this question what that means. and then you see them out there pandering to gun lobbies, and they want people to believe-- they're pro gun in the hunting context, we saw with john kerry back in 2004. remember this photo. that was mocked universally even in the left wing press. i'm a huntsman, but i want gun restrictions. >
exercise of religion, applies to these companies that have principles that the owners of these companies have religious convictions and to force or compel someone to violate their conscience is exactly what the free exercise clause of the constitution of the united states was designed to prevent. and this is turned that upside down. i think the obama administration just needs to go back and rewrite their exemptions here. and that would solve this problem. this could be handled administratively. so far the obama administration, president obama's administration has no desire to do that. that's why we're in court. bill: i understand you're looking for delay on this, but meantime us does the company pay the fine? >> they don't have to until the fine is assessed. i used to work with treasury. the question will be when will the actual fine be assessed against the company. that's where i think the department of justice and the department of labor should hold back and wait until the cases are adjudicated. bill: which reached -- >> most of the cases go in our favor, i understand the point you're
